Notes & Reviews:

  • The Strathclyde Concertos were jointly commissioned in the late 1980's.
  • The works' composer, Peter Maxwell Davies, leads the Scottish Chamber Orchestra in these recordings.
  • Mr. Davies, a daring and prolific composer of wide-ranging sensibilities, is a much-honored elder statesman of British music.

MusicWeb International, 15th March 2014
As one has come to expect in this series, the playing by the members of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra under the composer's baton is superlative and responsive. The original Collins Classics recordings sound as good as ever.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: City Hall, Glasgow, Scotland (11/23/1996/11/24/1996).
